Beautiful location but security concerns

Beautiful and clean location, but I would advise getting the safety deposit box if you select to stay at this resort. There was music throughout the day which I liked. There were several blackouts per day although only lasting a few minutes at best. The low flow commodes were an issue especially at night when the water pressure was so low you couldn't wash your hands. Staff was friendly but I would not suggest exchanging currency for them. All and all, I had a great time because I will make the best of most situations but I couldn't recommend the resort to anyone.

Disapointed

To get to hotel was a trek as the road from the main artery was not paved. The room was at best average, the kind of room that you will find n a motel 6 but clean. White sand beaches and the warm water was very good. The entertainment was on point as the focus was on the world cup of soccer. The front desk was not too helpful as there was limited English speaking and even when the information was given in Spanish it was not accurate. The food at the buffet was ok and the theme dinning was at best mediocre.

Disapointed

The only great thing was the entertainment. Room at best average. It was like a motel 6 room, clean but uncomfortable. The food at the buffet was ok but at the restaurants below average. Pool and beach of, weather almost perfect. English was not spoken by anybody at the front desk

What's to Love

Playa Blanca Beach is considered one of the best beaches in the Colombian Caribbean.

You'll have three large pools for lounging, soaking up the sun and splashing around in.

 

What We'd Change

The resort is 75 minutes from Cartagena, but once you arrive at this beach retreat, you'll see why it's worth it to be outside the city.
 

Why You Should Go

The resort is about 75 minutes from the airport, but this beachy slice of heaven is divine.

Mix and mingle other resort guests at nightly shows.

Tour Cartagena and explore the historic sites, where you'll also have access to bathrooms, changing rooms & a snack bar.
